You always get what you pay for....



I got this from my local orthodontist and this thing will not protect me from crap....Just remember when you go to get your mouthpiece made, ask for a sample of what it will look like first....


Talk about money wasted

No they took impressions from my upper teeth and molded the piece to fit perfectly inside my mouth, fits like a charm but obviously no protection for boxing...

Try fitting that into a standard protector....you may have to do some "persuading" but if you get it to fit you can use permanent dental adhesive to fit the molded piece into the one size fits all....I've done it for people a few times, try looking for a surgical supply house.

How is that for safety?

I'm not sure what you mean by no gumshield around it?

I have had to get my gumshield out and compare them!! ha ha! The thickness is fine, it looks exactly the same as mine.

I can see the impression of you teeth in it so it will protect your teeth better than any other mouth guard. The rubber may feel soft and thin so i can understand why you doubt.


I'm a heavy so i'm fighting big punchers ever time i fight and i havent had any problems since i started using dentist impression gum shields, I had loads of problems before i started using them!! Dont take my word for it, take both of your gumshields to the gym when you start going and ask your coach.

That mouthpiece sucks! It's hard to get a decent mouthpiece sometimes.
